  • Realistic treatments of the dangers of noxious atmospheres, crushing gravity, vacuum, radiation, and other hazards of space travel and exploration.
  • A self-contained, GURPS Vehicles-compatible starship construction system, covering TL8 (just around the corner) to TL13+ (superscience).
  • Complete ship combat rules – no ship counters, just roleplaying – for playing out ship-to-ship battles.
